Colombia and Honduras face off in an international friendly game at the DRV PNK Stadium in Florida ahead of their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixtures at the end of the month.

Colombia are fourth in the CONMEBOL qualifying standings. Meanwhile, Honduras find themselves at the bottom of the standings in CONCACAF's third round of qualifying as they are without a win in the eight games so far.

No Europe-based player has been called up for this friendly encounter by either side. The main objective for both managers will be to give uncapped players some playing time with the national team.
